Warm-Weather Storms can Leave Your Nashua Home with Flood Damage
Drying Out to Deodorization Solves Flood Damage
The most common concerns when a home in Nashua sustains flood damage are very closely aligned with our normal procedures. We must get your property cleaned up and livable, and doing so requires we work in a specific pattern.
At SERVPRO, we use internationally accepted standards that reduce waste while providing our customers with fast, reliable results. This matters to those living in Nashua, particularly after flood damage occurs. Pumping out the water is only the first phase. While the others might not seem as dramatic, they play equally important roles in restoring your domicile to livable conditions.
Our large pump trucks rapidly finish extracting the bulk of trapped water (from lower levels, including basements and crawlspace). Then, we can use the same mechanisms to remove water remaining in the crevices of your flooring with our water extraction wands.
Water-saturated materials often require removal instead of restoration. Water intrusions can leave things soaked through with microbes, bringing other kinds of damage into your home. Flooding within lower areas can produce microbes that can, once airborne, make otherwise dry materials and belongings start to mildew.
Because storms and flooding leave things wet, or at a minimum, damp, we avoid using ozone machines to deodorize. This is our final step in restoring a home. Instead of ozone, we make use of:
- Hydroxyl generators, as well as
- Gel packs that slowly and steadily release pleasant scents, and
- Odor-absorbing pellets are placed in inaccessible areas.
Flooding can also introduce copious amounts of foreign matter. This is particularly true when sudden and unexpected. If the foreign material is organic, it can leave your property with intense odors. We remove anything we find like this when we carry out other cleanings up of damaged materials. We do everything possible to make it “Like it never even happened.”
